This long term project will have 12 months of duration and we would like to receive 6 volunteers from different european countries.The participants must be over 18 and the official languages of the project will be English and Portuguese.The aim of this EVS project is to receive 6 youngsters, from different European countries and to give them the opportunity to know our country, our culture and our volunteer work that we do in our organization that we do in Arrouquelas, a small rural village.These volunteers will participate in our local community, helping children to develop themselves and to integrate them with the older population. In Arrouquelas, the biggest part of the population is elder people, so we want that these volunteers create a bigger interaction between young and old people, we want to help break the isolation of orders, situation that happens in rural areas.The volunteers will be divided in four different spaces (one week in each Institution), but they will develop a work together. Ex. During one week, 2 of them will work at «H2O»’s headquarter, taking care of our children, after school time, developing with them funny and pedagogical activities, support young families that dont have place to leave childrens during working time. They will also create several activities, trainings and workshops for young people in general.Another 2 will work withy old people and people with low mobility in Arrouquelas.Another 2 will develop an educational project related with social inclusion with the mental disable people of our region(Rio Maior área) young and adult disable people that have big social problems and our Association has a partnership with them, in order that we can collaborate in several activities. This project has as main objective to combat discrimination and loneliness that these people are subject.The volunteers can promote a bigger interaction and cooperation between all these Institutions and their target-groups.They can as well promote their own activities with their own ideas, bring something new to our work and contribute with good vibrations, during the time that they will stay in H2O.
